I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and French from Amherst College in 2012. After graduating, I spent a year as an English teacher on an exchange fellowship in France at the University of Burgundy in Dijon, and just last year I completed a Master's degree in English Literature at the University of Oxford in England. Throughout my education and my travels, I have tutored students of all ages, ranging from preschoolers in China to adult learners in Massachusetts. After having taken a few months out of school to work at a translation agency and consider whether and in what capacity I wanted to teach, I have decided to go back to graduate school to get my certification in teaching high school English. I love few things more than a well-wrought sentence, and I love working with students on an individual basis and sharing my enthusiasm for language and literature. In my spare time, I love to play volleyball (I'm a middle hitter) and I dabble in a cappella.
